How Democrats Can Take Back Michigan in 2020

Both nights of the Democratic debates in Detroit posed a fundamental question for the Democratic Party: How far left is too far left to beat President Trump? That’s especially relevant in the upper Midwest, where Trump managed to flip Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan in 2016.

Congressman Dan Kildee understands how to win in a red state. The Democrat represents nearby Flint, Michigan — a Democratic stronghold that Trump chipped away at in 2016, winning 42.59% of the vote versus Mitt Romney’s 35.24% in Genesee County. The water crisis made national news and hit residents of all races. In the past few months, the town has become a must-stop for presidential candidates like Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, Sen. Cory Booker, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who have all made visits in just the past few weeks.

Kildee came to Detroit to hear which of them has a plan that might galvanize voters in Flint and across Michigan. He told VICE News ahead of the Wednesday evening debate that candidates need to speak directly to voters’ anxieties.

“I think there’s a misperception about what’s happening in the economy. You know, we hear all this stuff about the economy is great, unemployment’s low, the Dow is at whatever. People are still afraid. They’re nervous about the job they might have now, but they don’t think they make enough money to support their families,” he said.

Kildee bluntly assessed that Michiganders “can see through bullshit really easily.”

Flint Health Chief Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter (HBO)

The head of Michigan’s state health department was charged with involuntary manslaughter on Tuesday in the latest criminal charge connected to the Flint water crisis.

Flint Residents Lead Astray: VICE News Tonight on HBO (Full Segment)

After suffering a lead contamination crisis, Flint, Michigan now has one of the most closely monitored water systems in the country. But despite reassurances from state and federal agencies that filtered water in Flint is now safe to drink, most residents still rely on bottled water provided by the state.

It’s a temporary solution. Flint’s more pressing problem is the estimated 20,000 outstanding lead and galvanized service lines that need to be replaced. In December, Congress allocated $170 million in federal aid for the city, and Flint Mayor Karen Weaver must balance addressing the immediate fears of the community while investing in long term infrastructure improvements.

The Military Polluted The City Of Newburgh’s Water — But Their Clean-up Is “Lagging” (HBO)

This week, during his State of the State address, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a 2 billion dollar investment plan for water infrastructure. A part of that funding would go towards local efforts to filter drinking water. The announcement comes only days after a State Senate report described potentially dangerous contaminants found in the water supply in the small city of Newburgh as part of a “burgeoning crisis”.

VICE News Tonight correspondent Arielle Duhaime-Ross went to Newburgh to learn more about the source of the contamination: the US military.

VICE News Tonight airs weeknights on HBO at 7:30pm.

Half Of The World’s Coffee Could Be Gone By 2050 (HBO)

Scientists predict that half of the world’s coffee could be gone by 2050, wiped out, in part, by a fungus known as coffee leaf rust.

“It was very upsetting because we expected to have a good harvest last year,” said Guadalupe Avendaño, a coffee farmer in Veracruz, Mexico, for more than 20 years. “But it was the worst.”

Coffee rust kills plants by depriving them of nutrients. And in 2014, the disease destroyed up to 70 percent of harvests in Mexico and Central America. It’s been a problem for coffee growers around the world for centuries, but unpredictable rainy seasons caused by climate change have intensified the spread of the fungus and affected farmers of varying means. “You used to make a living from coffee, but not anymore,” Avendaño said.

On The Line: Kayla Ruble Discusses the Flint Water Emergency

Follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/vicenews) where we’ll announce the next topic for On The Line.

VICE News journalist Kayla Ruble (https://twitter.com/RubleKB) joined On The Line to take your questions about lead contaminated water in Flint, MI, and the impact on Flint’s residents.

Earlier this month, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency for the city of just under 100,000 people, who are at risk for toxic lead exposure due to citywide contamination in the water system.

Following criticism that clean water was not being distributed efficiently to the city’s residents, the governor called in the National Guard for assistance, and President Barack Obama declared a federal emergency over the weekend, authorizing $5 million of federal assistance, though he stopped short of declaring the crisis a “major disaster.”

Residents across the city had stopped drinking the city water in early 2015, and were forced to purchase bottled water out of their own pocket until state help arrived this month.

Tearing Down Detroit: Demolishing Houses for the Economy
